    Question?

    I am a firm believer that college kids should stay in school all four year before turning pro in any sport. I know opinions are like buttholes...but please post to let me know what you think?

    I think it's like buying or selling stock. You have to go pro when you can get the most $... simple as that.

    I agree with you Nephilim (for what it's worth). Your education is something you never lose and need as your life goes on. Pro football playing time is just a blip on the radar in a lifetime.

    WADR, many college athletes are not there for an education.
    Just listen to Vince Young or other pro athletes absolutely butcher the English language.
    I think watching and listening to them is kind of comical.

    I agree with Cmac. If the money is there and the opportunity then why not turn pro? Go have your career, bank some money and then when your career is over you can go back and finish the degree. At that point you should be able to focus on school because there will be no sport to interfere with your education and you should not have to work during the year to earn money.

    As far as that is concerned yu could also take classes during the off season to keep working towards your degree.

    The real question is when they get the degree, will they do anything with it?
